Blessings

I haven't done a layout in awhile...needed some inspiration
and these two little blessings did the trick!
Lilly and Bennett are my niece and nephew
and most often the subject of my scrapbooking.

I continued with Lesley Langdon's paint on canvas embellishment:
This time I bought and used acrylic paint called Juniper-It matched perfectly I love that!

The paper is Stella and Rose by My Mind's Eye.
The chick is from Ippity's Sweet Thoughts of Spring, the swirls are a grab bag stamp,
and the sentiment is from Echo Park's With Love.

The rosettes are a Tim Holtz diecut with CTMH brads in the center.
I've had a few questions about the canvas:
I bought the canvas pieces from Archiver's. They have all different shapes:  hearts, squares, diamonds...
Although, if you are near an Ikea they have fabric swatches for FREE. The "blekinge white" color is perfect for this technique. They aren't really stiff but the canvas is two layers so I'd call it thick. I adhered to my page with glossy accents.
